Hindu outfits celebrate BBMP order on Bengalurus Idgah grounds

Idgah Maidan Row The order said that Karnataka State Board of Auqaf did not submit necessary documents despite multiple notices. TNM Staff Hindu outfits in Bengaluru gathered in Chamarajpet near the Idgah maidan to celebrate an order passed by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palikes (BBMP) Joint Commissioner (West), S M Srinivas stating the ownership of the land is now vested with the Karnataka Revenue Department. The order was passed on August 6. The groups gathered at the maidan on August 7 and burst crackers and distributed sweets to locals. The order dated August 6, 2022 says that the Karnataka State Board of Auqaf (Wakf) was given seven days to furnish the document. The time allotted for them to appear before the BBMP with the required documentation was extended for an additional five days since they failed to do so earlier. The order stated that the Wakf board members had only presented the Supreme Court orders, which was insufficient despite several extensions. The BBMP has dismissed their requests, stating that the Supreme Court judgement from 1964 only granted congregational rights to the Muslim community and did not confer ownership rights, because the board had not provided the necessary documentation showing ownership. In June this year, Hindu organisations requested permission from the BBMP to organise celebrations for all religions on the property, which rekindled the dispute over the site which has been going on for several decades. The royal Wodeyar family of Mysuru gave the Muslim community more than 10 acres of land many years ago to be used as a cemetery and for Eidgah. After a lengthy legal dispute that lasted for decades, the Supreme Court finally decided that the land belongs to the Central Muslim Association (CMA) in 1964. After the cemetery was moved to a new position close to Mysore Road over time, the land's size decreased to two acres and 10 guntas. Therefore, all that was left was a space where Eid prayers could be delivered in front of an already-existing minar. The public uses the area for a variety of activities, such as cow grazing and as a playground. The Idgah Maidan is listed in the 1974 city survey documents as a playground with a khata in the name of the BBMP, suggesting that the area is a public property owned by the city corporation. The Karnataka State Board of Auqaf, according to the BBMP, should have represented themselves and declared their ownership of the land during the 1974 survey, or they might have asserted their claim at a later time and had the khata transferred in their name, which has not been done. The Karnataka State Board of Auqaf disputed that the Idgah Maidan's two acres and 10 guntas of land are officially recognised Wakf properties in the wake of the Idgah Maidan controversy. The Central Muslim Association (CMA), who have looked after the Idgah maidan, has provided a number of documentation to support their ownership. This includes a Supreme Court decision from 1964 that apparently rejected a plan to build on the site and a subsequent Wakf gazette notification from June 7, 1965, identifying the property as a Wakf property. Despite this, there was misunderstanding, because the area was listed as a playground in the 1974 survey and civic records. Following the recent order, the BBMP now says that any dispute that the Wakf board has over the ownership of the land must be taken up with the Karnataka Revenue Department.

Plastic and wax lined paper should also be banned, say environmentalists

Plastic ban The country-wide rules mandate a ban from July 1 on manufacturing, import, stocking, distribution, sale, and use of single-use plastic items an industry that is worth Rs 10,000 crore. Rida Fathima Tom Sova/ Pixabay The consistent cry against the use of single-use plastic has turned many citizens to consciously adopt paper packaging and cutlery. The ban of single-use plastic from July 1 across the country has also now left the food service industry to move to paper based packaging as well. But there is a little known fact that this paper used for food packaging is not as sustainable as believed. Environmentalists say that cutlery made from paper is not nearly as eco-friendly as believed, as it has a wax coating on the paper. Sandeep Anirudhan, an environmentalist based in Bengaluru, says that it is both an ecological and health hazard and calls it a significant loophole in the law that permits the production of fused plastic. The Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change notified the Plastic Waste Management Amendment Rules, 2021, in August last year. The rules mandate a ban from July 1 on manufacturing, import, stocking, distribution, sale, and use of single-use plastic items an industry that is worth Rs 10,000 crore. The single-use plastic ban has now come into effect and environmentalists have flagged the loopholes of this particular legislation. The plastic and wax are fused in the food while using paper cups, and because of this, they cannot be recycled, says Sandeep Anirudhan, explaining the lack of awareness about health risks that are associated with the use of paper cups. Furthermore, Radhika Srinivasan, a local environmentalist, says that items with fused plastic linings are prohibited from use as well. But since paper cups are not on the list of banned items, they are in use despite their plastic lining. This law offers no recourse or alternative to business owners who deal with the manufacturing and production of single-use plastic. Ravindra, a former employee of a plastic-producing company is currently unemployed after the company he worked for closed down. Speaking to TNM, he says that while there is a need to ban single-use plastic, employees and business owners need alternatives as well. I am looking for a new job, and there are many like me who have been affected by the ban. The government should make sure we arent collateral damage in the process of this ban, because we do not have any recourse, he explains. BBMP officials have had trouble enforcing the ban since a lot of manufacturers get away with their products being labelled as biodegradable and consider themselves exempt from the ban. Suhani, a student who volunteers with local NGOs stated that legislators and lawmakers need to work closely with environmental experts before putting a law into action, as it can avoid a lot of misgivings such as these. These laws, although well-meaning, are not nearly as well-planned. Are environmentalists consulted? Are the woes of the average worker affected by this decision, considered? If yes, what measures are taken to ensure they do not suffer in the process? Are we factoring in welfare schemes for small business owners and their employees? These are questions that remain unanswered and as a result, public consensus is lost in translation, it is all very concerning, says Suhani.

Karnataka rains: Rs 200 crore released for rescue and rehabilitation

Karnataka Rains 2022 Till August 2, a sum of Rs 657 crore was available with the Deputy Commissioners to take up rescue and relief works, and the State government on Saturday released Rs 200 crore for 21 districts. PTI As torrential rains continued to batter many parts of Karnataka on Saturday, August 6, the State government released Rs 200 crore to take up relief and rehabilitation operations, even as Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai instructed the constitution of two more State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) contingents. The Chief Minister, who has tested COVID-19 positive, held a video conference with Deputy Commissioners (DCs) of rain-affected districts, Ministers and officials, and obtained details on flood havoc, landslides, crop losses and relief work undertaken, from his home where he has isolated himself. While 70 people have lost their lives due to incessant rains from June 1 to August 6, a total of 507 livestock loss have been reported during the period. Bommai has instructed the officials to constitute the additional SDRF contingents to strengthen relief and rescue systems, his office said in a statement. Already, SDRF and NDRF contingents have been deployed in the flood-hit areas. The DCs should maintain constant contact with the teams and take up immediate relief and rehabilitation works, he said. Further stating that there is no shortage of funds for relief and rehabilitation operations, the Chief Minister said already Rs 200 crore has been released for 21 districts, and the DCs should take immediate action to disburse compensation for houses destroyed or damaged. According to information, till August 2, a sum of Rs 657 crore was available with the DCs to take up rescue and relief works, and the State government on Saturday released Rs 200 crore for 21 districts. Repair and restoration of roads, bridges and electric supply lines should be taken up immediately. Power supply in villages should be restored and DCs should interact with the electricity supply companies (ESCOMS) concerned in this regard, he said. Adequate stock of electric poles and transformers should be ensured, and crop loss survey should be completed at the earliest and compensation disbursed without any delay, he added. Bommai wanted the officials to issue flood alerts in advance and instructed for action in this regard at Bennehalla in Gadag district, Varada river banks in Haveri district and other places. He also said that alerts should be issued to villages downstream before releasing waters from reservoirs, and precautions should be taken to prevent breach of tank bunds. He wanted the officials to also identify the areas prone to landslides in Kodagu, Dakshina Kannada and Uttara Kannada districts and to shift the people in these areas to safer places. People should be provided with good, quality food at the care centres, he said. While 3,559 houses have been damaged completely due to rains, 17,212 houses have been partially damaged. Agriculture crops in 1,29,087 hectares, horticulture crops in 7,942 hectares, 3,162 km of roads, 8,445 km of rural roads, 1,068 bridges and culverts, 4,531 schools, 222 anganwadis have been damaged. Also, 16,760 electric poles, 1,469 transformers, 409 km of electric wires, and 33 minor irrigation tanks have been damaged.

Unfortunate: NITI Aayog on KCR boycotting General Council meeting

Controversy The General Council is the apex body of NITI Aayog, and PM Narendra Modi chaired the seventh Governing Council meeting at Rashtrapati Bhavan Cultural Centre. This is the first physical meeting of the Council after July 2019. PTI File Photo | Facebook The apex public policy think tank of India NITI Aayog, on Saturday, August 6, termed Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's decision to boycott the Governing Council meeting held on Sunday as 'unfortunate'. Chandrasekhar Rao has decided to boycott the meeting of the Governing Council, which will be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as a mark of protest against the alleged discriminatory policies of the Union government towards the states.It is unfortunate that the Chief Minister of Telangana has chosen not to participate in the Governing Council meeting of NITI Aayog to be held on August 7, the Aayog said. The Governing Council, it added, is a forum where the highest political leadership in the country at the Center and State levels deliberate on key development-related issues and agree on appropriate outcome oriented solutions for national development. The Telangana Chief Minister on Saturday told the Prime Minister that he will be boycotting the meeting as a mark of protest against the present 'discriminating' trend of the Union government towards the state governments. In a strongly-worded letter to Modi, Telangana CM KCR said, India as a strong nation can develop only when the states develop. KCR also listed a host of reasons for boycotting the meet. I do not find it useful to attend the 7th Governing Council meeting of NITI Aayog scheduled to be held on August 7, 2022 and I am staying away from it as a mark of strong protest against the present trend of central government to discriminate against the states and not treating them as equal partners in our collective effort to make India a strong and developed country, he added. NITI Aayog in a statement dismissed the charges levelled by KCR. The Aayog said a delegation led by its Vice Chairman met the Telangana Chief Minister in Hyderabad on January 21, 2021, to discuss development issues pertaining to the state. More recently, despite requests made by NITI Aayog for a meeting, the Chief Minister did not respond, it added. The statement pointed out that in preparation for the August 7, 2022, Governing Council meeting, detailed consultations between the Union government and States, including Telangana, were held resulting in the first National Chief Secretaries Conference held in Dharamshala in June 2022. The allegation of Hon'ble CM Telangana that states were not co-opted in preparation of agenda is incorrect, it said. The statement noted that NITI Aayog was set up as an Institution with the mandate of cooperative federalism with a premise that strong states make a strong nation. A number of measures have already been put in place to work closely with states, it said, adding that in the last year alone more than 30 meetings have been held with the chief ministers of states by the Vice Chairman, and members of NITI Aayog. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired the seventh Governing Council meeting of the NITI Aayog at Rashtrapati Bhavan Cultural Centre on Sunday, in which discussions will be held on various issues such as crop diversification and implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP). The Council, the apex body of NITI Aayog, includes all chief ministers, lieutenant governors of Union Territories and several Union ministers. The prime minister is the Chairman of NITI Aayog. This will be the first physical meeting of the Council after July 2019. Watch this week on Let Me Explain: What the Enjoy Enjaami controversy is about
